Re: putting a program icon back on the desktop

Yes, and if you do as I do in many instances, instead of opening File Explorer and navigating via that method, I will deselect the desktop icons, right click the desktop, and then pick shortcut from "new" in the context menu. Since I usually do not know the path to the file, I simply select browse to find it and use the tree view to do so. Nothing more than personal preference. Theare probably 3 or 4 different ways to skin this particular cat.

Although what you are describing is necessary in Explorer if you are
navigating using the treeview, but not with the listview.

I'm not sure to which browse dialog you are referring, but this is not required in the browse dialog for a new shortcut.

If Bill is using the browse function to locate the executable file to send a shortcut to the desktop, it is possible that the folder which contains this file has the "Closed/Open" access by using the left and right arrow keys. If you open the folder by pressing the right arrow key, most single files will not appear in this view. You must first press the space bar to ensure that the folder is in focus, then tab to open the contents of the folder. In this view, you will see all files and folders within the folder. Scroll down to the executable file, press the Applications key and select either "Create Shortcut" or "Send To" to get your shortcut back onto the desktop.

I'm not sure what you mean by the wizard. How exactly are you trying to add
the shortcut back to the desktop?

Hi Everyhone,
